Last month, the Red Devils confirmed the appointment of Ten Hag as their new manager on a contract until June 2025, with the option of an additional year, with the deal due to officially begin at the end of the season.
The Dutchman has thus far been determined to focus on finishing the season at Ajax, who still have one Eredivisie match left of the 2021-22 campaign against Vitesse this weekend.
Ajax secured the league title on Wednesday evening, though, courtesy of a 5-0 success over Heerenveen, with the Amsterdam giants winning the trophy for the 36th time in their history.
According to ESPN journalist Rob Dawson, Ten Hag held a recruitment meeting with Man United officials in Amsterdam on Thursday to discuss the club's summer activity.
Dawson claims that possible ins and outs were discussed, with the 20-time English champions preparing to overhaul their squad in the upcoming market.
Cristiano Ronaldo, though, is expected to remain with the club this summer despite suggestions that the 37-year-old was keen to move on due to the lack of Champions League football next season.
De Jong could allegedly be available for a fee in the region of €60m (£51m), with Barcelona looking to make one big sale this summer amid their ongoing financial problems.
There are a number of other areas of the squad that need improvement, though, with Ten Hag thought to be determined to add a new centre-back and centre-forward ahead of next season.
Nunez has scored 34 goals and registered four assists in 41 appearances in all competitions at club level this term, and the Uruguay international could potentially be available for a fee in the region of £65m.
Meanwhile, Inacio, who has scored five times and provided two assists in 44 appearances for Sporting this term, is said to have a €45m (£38.5m) buy-out fee in his current contract.
Man United are currently battling West Ham United for sixth spot in the Premier League table, which would bring a spot in the group stage of next season's Europa League. body check tags ::
